Today:  Michael Noland, the president of NICTD, talks about the progress of the two South Shore Line projects now moving through the funding and planning stages -- "Double Track NWI" and the "West Lake Corridor," which expands the commuter railroad service south from the existing east-west line through Hammond and Munster and into Dyer.

We also have the latest in a decision from a federal court judge on a request to allow East Chicago residents affected by the lead contamination in the area to participate in the court case. 

Carl Lisek of South Shore Clean Cities has another episode of "Green Fleet Radio."  And "Lakeshore Focus" looks at two people's efforts to help youth get ready for the working world after school.
